Alex is passionate about making a difference and having an impact when engaging with colleagues, clients, and candidates. Entrepreneurial at his core, Alex is charged by understanding what drives his clients, what informs their decisions, and the economic, social, and political environments they are operating within. By extension, his interest is piqued by areas of intense innovation and disruption including carbon emission reduction, net zero agendas, broader ESG & sustainability initiatives, and diversity, particularly in the real asset space. Alex was attracted to search because it provides the opportunity to continuously learn from an incredibly diverse global professional network, and he takes immense satisfaction in helping clients achieve the growth and success they strive for.
Operating across U.K., EMEA, APAC, and the U.S., Alex is adept at providing solutions for complex strategic vacancies and partners with FTSE 100 & FTSE 250 companies, as well as a number of Europe’s fastest growing privately owned organisations as they continue to expand multinationally.
